Downloaded from: http://seminarymoments.blogspot.com/2014/01/mosiah-27-repent-from-sin.html This wonderful talk by L. Tom Perry started off our lesson: I was on an airplane a few weeks ago on my way home. On the seat next to mine was a news magazine opened to an article which intrigued me.

James 1-2, “Doers” Just Do!

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/04/30/james-1-2-doers-just-do/ This lesson goes really well this April’s Come Follow Me curriculum on the Restoration. We started off with some background on who James was (see Bible Dictionary, third entry under James and James, Epistle of) so that we could establish some “street cred” and determine the importance his writings may have.

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/04/22/2-timothy-1-4-perilous-problems-and-scripture-solutions/ In small groups, students began by creating a list of common sins in our society. We listed a few on the board and compared our list to Paul’s list in 2 Timothy 3:1-5. Just as President Packer illustrated in a talk he gave, we were able to see that Paul’s list is a perfect “checklist” […]

Spiritual Remedies from “Heavenly Halls Medical”

Today we began the study of Helaman, chapter 1-6. I intend to cover these chapters over the next two days. And when I begin a new book within The Book of Mormon (Alma, Helaman, Words of Mormon, etc.), I like to give an overview so that the students have a global understanding of what we’re about to microscopically look at. For the overview, I print up summaries of each (or…
